WRITER: Your job will be to research provided print and online resources and create quality route entries across the U.S. Route entries will include both hard data and an original write-up. This is a short-term contract position, starting almost immediately, and you can work from anywhere. We'll pay you per route you complete – a competitive hourly rate – and incentives for those that qualify.

EDITOR: Your job is to be final eyes on trail routes. You will review route entries in an Excel spreadsheet to ensure proper formatting, and edit a trail description (5-10 sentences total) for spelling, grammar, and logical sense. You will make any corrections according to the editing guide we will provide. Careful attention to detail and perfectionist attitude are required. You must possess the inner stamina and endurance to stare at a spreadsheet for hours on end to edit thousands of routes - not a glamorous task, to be sure!
